‘tit Rex 2016 Preview: It’s no big deal

Watch as the Krewe of ‘tit Rex provides a preview of their 2016 Mardi Gras mini parade, which rolls on Saturday (Jan. 30) at 5, starting near the corner of St. Claude and St. Roch Avenues. This year’s ‘tit Rex theme is “It’s No Big Deal.”

It’s Official, but No Big Deal

We're having our little parade, so come out and joing us on January 30th, 5pm – starting on St. Roch & Marais on the neutral ground. ( watch, it will snow that day )  


Yeah, I know the poster says St. Roch & St. Claude, but what's one block between friends?

11 Funky Mardi Gras Parades You Didn’t Know Existed: No 2- ‘tit Rex

Krewe of 'tit Rex members Veronica Russel & Michael Cerveris preparing for the 2014 Parade, ‘Wee The People’.

For decades, New Orleans schoolchildren would fashion Carnival floats out of shoe boxes. Now there's a whole parade of them (Saturday, Jan. 30), courtesy of 'tit Rex, about as street-level a procession as one can imagine. (The floats are so tiny, krewe membership has been capped so as not to overwhelm members' own work.) A loose coalition of some of New Orleans' most creative artists, journalists, and entertainers, 'tit Rex's membership includes Broadway and TV star Michael Cerveris ("Fun Home," "The Good Wife"), and the floats often embody the same satire (politically and socially) of the Krewe du Vieux parade (though without as much raunch). The mini-parade rolls through the Faubourg Marigny just before and after sunset.
